Paragraph summary of what was covered in class

We did an E major 2 octave scale, and then spent the rest of the class working on our RECITAL PIECE which is…...Don’t Worry Be Happy. WE worked on reading the written bass part, and the melody. We also introduced the technique of sliding into notes (scooping) for a bluesy, lyrical effect.

Assignment for next week

Work on learning the Don’t Worry be Happy bass part and Melody. Priority is the bass part. Please try your best to be able to play that part.
